CDV is a chest -up view of General Lee in a dark civilian suit.

Contrast and clarity are excellent. Paper and mount have light surface dirt. The bottom center of the mount has printed publishing information for 1865. Handwritten in period ink over the publishing information is “IN PEACE AS MILD AS A LAMB. IN WAR DREADED BY FOE.” Looking closely at the inscription it is obvious that the original inscription started to fade and was done over with darker ink.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint of M. B. BRADY… WASHINGTON, D. C. & NEW YORK. There is also another inscription done in old black ink that reads “THIS PICTURE BELONGED TO “TILLIE BONNELL BYANE” WHO AFTERWARDS MARRIED MR. TYLER. SHE WAS SOUTHERN IN HER VIEWS TO THE LAST. SHE WROTE THE INSCRIPTION BELOW THE PHOTOGRAPH. J. l. MOORE.” There is also some collector information in pencil.

From the collection of the late William A. Turner.  [ad] [ph:L]
